Why would a team like *Accept Yourself* have only 81 members? Especially with uplifting posts like "What do you like about yourself?" I am finding that people are really troubled by the idea of accepting they're okay, no matter what their ... Read more

Went to sleep really late last night (doing laundry) and couldn't fall asleep after that so I fell asleep while writing this morning after my workout. Finished my article and did some more tile shopping--I'll be glad when all the fixtures a... Read more
I wrote something and then deleted it...

because I think it gave the wrong message. What I wanted to say is...if you've ever hated yourself for regaining weight, read "Rethinking Thin" by Gina Kolata. You won't blame yourself anymore. Also--this Sparkpeople article quotes the... Read more

70 minutes on the elliptical this morning! I've found that starting at level 7 and going continuously wears me out in 30 minutes or so, but starting at level 1 and increasing a level every 5 minutes (up to level 7) and then down a level ev... Read more
Diets don't work!
Saturday, April 24, 2010      5 comments

About halfway through "Rethinking Thin" and it's so upsetting to read how all these people tried all these different diets and ended up gaining their weight back. Just read about a study where a number of men were allowed to participate in lieu ... Read more

I love my leader. Erika is the reason I went back to WW. I lost 3 lbs according to their scales (I already knew it from mine) and so it's over 10lbs lost since I rejoined--and I made my 5% off!... Read more

Some TV channels have banned a Lane Bryant underwear ad, saying it showed too much cleavage. To their credit, Fox will be airing the commercial during American Idol. Lane Bryant is alleging that since networks air Victoria's Secret ads with no ... Read more
Blew it...but it's not bad

One of my goals is proving harder to achieve than the others--staying off the scale. I guess I just need to see that this new way of doing things is working. I weighed myself at the gym today and then verified naked at home (but after drinking s... Read more
Therapist's take

Spoke to my therapist today about my resolutions (of COURSE I have a therapist, I'm from New York, aren't I?!). I told her I'm not eating all that much because I am trying to eat when hungry and I never seem to feel hungry. I also don't eat tha... Read more

When I logged in this morning, I had 25 points before even spinning the wheel...anyone have any idea why?... Read more
I Don't Hate Myself...
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      2 comments

I realized today that it's been quite a few days that I haven't hated myself. This has caused a huge reduction in stress. I guess it feeds on itself---overeating and breaking a diet equals hating yourself equals stress equals beating yourself up... Read more

Josh called from the airport--he landed. Which means that I'm off solo duty with the kids. I'm really proud of what I accomplished in his absence--it's been a learning experience that the fears I had from the past (staying at home with two ... Read more

Sunday, April 18, 2010      4 comments

Josh is taking the redeye out of Vegas tonight so he gets in around 9:30 tomorrow morning. He's going straight to work but this is my last night alone with the kids. I consider this a great success. First of all, no one died. (j/k). But re... Read more

Day Two of Josh being away is now over, on to Day Three. Happy to report, no binging. And yesterday was definitely a binge-worthy day. I actually made a list of all the things that annoyed me or frustrated me yesterday, culminating with my... Read more
Alone again and not binging.
Friday, April 16, 2010      5 comments

My husband is in Vegas, as I think I reported before. This leaves me at home with both kids, which terrifies me and which would normally cause a massive binge to calm me down. But I thought through it instead--wondering why it terrifies me... Read more
